Dear J. K. Rowling,

Thanks so much for writing a series that finally got my mother to read (and love!)fantasy.
I never managed to make her understand why i love "Lord Of The Rings" and believe me, i did try.
Thanks also for lots of very short nights, because i "just had to finish that Harry Potter book". Please just go on writing that way and i promise yours will be one of the first books i'll read to my children, as soon as i got them.

Greetings to Harry and friends,

The Harry Potter series by Joanne Rowling is a wonderful mix of wit, comedy and imagination, that is virtually impossible to criticise because it has all of the key elements to a good story. The 3 books, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban were all initially written for children but because of some excellent twists and revelations, are just as entertaining for an Adult as it is for any child.
The story is about a boy called (surprise, surprise) Harry Potter who, after a startling turn of events, finds himself packed off to a boarding school, specifically, Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, to study magic. In His first year at Hogwarts (The first book) Harry finds himself becoming hopelessly entangled in the mystery of the Philosophers Stone and also, in the mystery of his past which involves him defeating the most powerful wizard ever at the age of 1.
Harry is supported by a cast of wonderfully developed characters such as Hermione, a Muggle-born witch so smart it's sickening, Ron, a walking disaster with a talent for chess, Hagrid, a lovable lunk of a man with an unusual passion for extremely large, extremely dangerous and often firebreathing animals, and Professor Dumbledore, a wise old wizard who knows that Harry's powers are much more than they seem.
The Harry Potter books are a delight to read and none of them ever turn out how you expect them to, each having a very surprising twist at the end. The books leave you transfixed and believe me, you can NOT take your eyes away from them, how ever hard you try. Overall, a fantastic series which will (and has) shot straight to the #1 place of the best seller list.
